What is sadness?

To be on the verge of happiness, only to slip into emptiness.

The Chaff Remains

Dreams in decline.
Waning expectations,
Lowering our self-esteem.
Hallowed offerings pruned; expunged.
Did we lose hope?

Today's Tendril...

To be a "victim of the system" is one thing.

To be the victim of your own silence is quite another.

Today's Tendril... Midnight Oil

Ambitions burned in midnight oil,
When seen through the rested eyes of tomorrow,
Do not always have the charm and allure,
That they did,
The night before.

The Lines of Exploration

Reality is the exploration of the lines that we draw—
Within our hearts,
To complete a task,
For the sake of balance,
As the scaffolding of dreams,
At the intersection of fact and fiction,
Around the highest of priorities,
To connect the unseen dots,
In the logic of appearances,
Among the living (and the dead),
Between the heavens and the hells,
Along the stitches and staples of memories,
And on the pages of our lives...

The day both glistens and is gray.

The breeze flows like a stream,
And the tree tops do sway.

If only I could find the time,
To while away a few hours,
Just thinking and dreaming,
Then that would be,
A day to remember.

Oh, what a day...

Today's Tendril...

If you choose to dawdle behind a closed door, then you shouldn't be surprised when it hits you in the face.

Today's Tendril...

Wormholes. Black holes. Pie holes. A$$holes.

All parts of the same whole —

The Universe.

Another Today's Tendril...

When you lose yourself in decoding the past, you risk missing the lessons of the here and now.

And that could turn into quite a tangled problem come tomorrow.

Today's Tendril...

In artwork, as in philosophy, there's a fine line between avant-garde and intellectual static.

And sometimes that line is a cliff.

Today's Tendril...

When only the end matters to you, the means are the bricks you—
Lay for the foundation,
Stack to build walls,
Throw as weapons.

Never yield to mediocrity.

Instead, plow ahead — at ramming speed.

Today's Tendril...

I don't bother trying to read the tea leaves.

But that's mostly due to the fact that I don't drink tea.

Today's Tendril...

Nothing shatters quite like the glass ceiling of faith,
Of hypocrisy,
Of personal limitation.
